Nice beach - waves can be big when the tide is coming in.

Nice beach. Not crowded unless near one of the resorts. Some eating places and other shops we came across near the Holiday Inn. There was also a laundry service there - about Bt85... read more

if you are looking for privacy and nothing.....go here. The was clean, but no fish or snorkeling. It's just a below average beach.

A nice beach to go for a walk. It's really wide and there aren't much other people. A big comparison to other beaches in Phuket. But during the whole week the current was everyday to heavy. Not suitable for swimming and no supervision or anything else like a shower, shops or beds. So we found it too scary to swim... More

Nice beach. Not crowded unless near one of the resorts. Some eating places and other shops we came across near the Holiday Inn. There was also a laundry service there - about Bt85 for a kilo of laundry. Waves were big when the tide was coming in. But fairly calm otherwise. Quite a steep drop-off as some have pointed out....

Best unspoilt beach, stunning and quiet. Good for relaxing and swimming. Able to walk straight from resort onto beach and free from traders. Not a single bit of trash or waste.

Lovely beach on the Andaman sea side of the Thai coast. Mai Khao quiet an unspoilt area around Phukets bigger and noisier Resorts hotels and apartments. Nearer the Airport than Phuket. But not as many local areas restaurants etc.

Fantastic Thai food with a good price. Try the cafe on the beach beside Sala Phuket and you will not regret the freshness and tastiness of the food dished out by the husband and wife.

Beach was right in front of our resort pool. I have been to Phuket many times. This is definitely the best beach besides Karon Beach. The beach is long, clean and not crowded (accessible by resort guest). No boats in vicinity too. Perfect for sunset watch and photography. Beach wave is strong. We really had a great time spending an... More

This beach is not famous on its sand and might not able to compare to the rest of the beaches in Phuket, however, its location is located next to the airport. Coming to this beach you won't expecting beach, but watching landing of airplane.

It's beautiful here, especially if you just wanna walk along the beach and be alone with your thoughts. Better if you have a loved one to walk along with. I just loved listening to the sound of the waves. But yeah, the waves are quite strong so i dont recommend you swim here.
